NEW SU! product you can get now!

Hey Guys!

So, Stampin’ Up! has NEW product we can buy now from the upcoming catalog! Of course, I HAD to buy it, I mean twist my arm a little harder. ūüôā Here is a video you can watch to see the full Suite.

I have made three cards, today I am sharing with you one of them.

It is funny how you start out with one idea in your head, and it morphs into something else. The first thing I did was do the scallop edges on the top of a piece of Pretty Peacock, I didn’t realize at first that it was a border die…once I figured that out (duh) I ran it through again to make a strip so both edges are scalloped.

Then, I thought I would use one of the small dies to put in the middle. Well, that turned out very pretty!

Now what to do with it? There was a strip of the Noble peacock Foil sitting next to me, Put it behind the image and that was great! Then I thought that the embossing folder would be so pretty using that same foil paper, and it was! But I needed it to pop, so I got my StazOn black and rubbed it over the flowers in places to get it to shine! Well? What do you think?

As always, here are the particulars for this card:

Stamps:
Ornate Thanks

Inks:
StazOn Black (the Memento won’t stick to the foil)
Versamark

Paper:
Granny Apple Green 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Pretty Peacock 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Noble Peacock Foil 4″ x 1″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, scrap for leaves I got from die

Misc:
Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Glitter Black Embossing Powder
Ornate Borders Dies
Ornate Layers Dies
Liquid Glue

I’ve lagged behind on my blog posts, so sorry! Who says that if they had ‘enough time’ they would get a ton done!? Well, WE all have time now, what have you been doing with that time? I AM stamping, tried out Zoom (great tool for keeping in touch and getting to SEE everyone!), been watching a ton of tv……How about you?

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We are lucky, my husband and I can work from home, but our Son’s job wants him to come in and it is NOT a crucial job. He feels like he HAS to go since he needs to pay his bills. ūüôĀ

Please come back and visit!

It’s a MAN card!!

Hey Guys!

If you’re wondering why my title sounds so weird it’s because I remember a cartoon that had the woman in it scream “It’s a MAN!”, in a very high voice, and she always scared that poor man!¬† LOL¬† ¬†My friend and I were reminiscing the other day about all our fun shows we watched growing up and this just popped in to my head when I was thinking of what Title I wanted.¬† ‘Manly’ cards are always a challenge for those of us that make handmade cards, for some reason the so-called ‘Girly Cards’ are much simpler to think up!¬† Hence the title!¬† LOL¬† So, now you KNOW just how crazy I am!

For this card I used the Truly Tailored Card from the Occasions 2018 Catalog from SU!¬† I got this idea from Tami White……I changed it up VERY LITTLE!!¬† Thanks Tami for your awesome MAN card!

Below you will see pictures of the items used for this card, just click on any picture and you will be sent to my OnLine Store!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card as a Thank you!!

Dimensions for this card:

Thick Whisper White:
8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 4″ x 4 3/8″, 5″ x 3 3/4″, 2 1/2″ sq

Night of Navy:
2 3/4″ sq, 5 1/4″ x 4″

Basic Gray:

Tarnished Foil Technique

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I was last here!¬† Sorry, life got a bit busy.¬† I had my trip to Salt Lake City Utah for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, and WOW I had so much fun! I met up with my SU! Besties and we room together every time!

I came home and 4 days later we went to Vero Beach for a much needed break!  It was so nice to sit and read on the beach!!  I was under the umbrella and the only thing that would have totally made it better was to have a Beach Boy bring me some drinks!  hahaha

Now I am home and I jumped right back in to my ‘work’.¬† I put the apostrophes there because I have so much fun creating it is sometimes hard to remember that I get PAID!¬† Love my job, if you want to join my team, just let me know!

On to the Tarnished Foil technique, thanks to my Besties Carol and Hetty for telling me all about it!  I HAD to come home and try my hand at it!

Here are the cards I did on my YouTube video:

Aren’t they stunning?!!¬† This is a fun and easy technique and no two are alike!¬† I Love stacking my ribbons, can you see it?¬† I ‘colored’ my gold edged ribbon with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends so it would go with my project and stacked it with the copper ribbon!¬† Go check out my video for all the dimensions.

I hope if you live in the States you choose me as your demonstrator!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you one of my cards that I use for my videos!  Shop Now!

As always, the items used for this post are listed below, each picture will link you to my OnLine Store!¬† I DO have some SAB items for a sneak peek, can’t list them below, but the one I used is called Happy Wishes, and I KNOW you will want it as much as I did!

A card that SHOWS a Hummingbird flapping its wings!

Welcome to the North Carolina Blog Hop! ¬†Or as we call it: ¬†NCDemos! ¬†If you ever want to be a part of the best group, join Stampin’ Up! and live in North Carolina! ¬†We get together Quarterly and have the best time!!

Today I am sharing with you The Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called You Move Me! ¬†This set at first glance isn’t all that exciting, BUT when you see the card in action, you can’t help but get excited!!

I am sharing with you a video that shows the card in action!

Isn’t that fun!!?

I used the Mini Treat Bag thinlit with the New Powder Pink cardstock!  Berry Blast was used as an accent color!  I also used the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape at the top of the Whisper White insert
(5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″). This card is super easy once you cut out the Mini Treat Bag, just cut out the shutter part before you put it together! ¬†Then stamp the Hummingbird image using two colors of inks ( I used Fresh Fig) full strength on the bigger image, and then used Fresh Fig on the smaller image (line up head and tail!) but stamped off so I got a lighter color! ¬†I thought it would be MUCH harder to do! ¬†It’s always great when things are easier than they look!

I also used the Fresh Fig Ribbon at the top to help in the pulling up of the inside!

Blog Candy is available if you comment here on my blog (anywhere as many times as you want!), FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram! ¬†That’s all you have to do to be in the drawing (held July 4th), that’s a pretty easy way to earn free goodies!!

This is what you will be in the drawing for:

You can’t beat FREE!!

Darling Baby Card! Kylie’s International Blog hop!

Once again I am TRYING to be in the top ten for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, will you help me?? ¬†I came close last time, but would really like to get there this time! ¬† Can you tell that the dog is fluffy and two colors!? ¬†Read on to see how it was done!

Please vote for me by going to Kylie’s blog hop page! ¬†To vote, you will click on the heart in the right corner of the pictures, preferably mine!! ¬†ūüôā

The theme this month is Baby. ¬†My card isn’t traditional ‘baby’ but I think it would make a GREAT Birthday card for any baby, OR on the inside it could say that you are expecting!! ¬†That you are HAVING a baby!!

Here’s my card:

Isn’t it cute!!?? ¬†Same as last month, I had a totally different card planned, but I didn’t think it mustered! ¬†I came home from a stamp class today and sat right down and made this one! ¬†I love how the dog has such puffy fur! ¬†Want to know how I did that?

That’s Vellum that I stamped the dog on, using Soft Suede (then embossed with clear), I then turned it over onto one of our stamp mats, and using the stylus from the Score Board I press in circular motions (gently at first!!) on the places for the white fur, it makes the Vellum raise up and turn white!! ¬†Cool Right!!?? I then cut ANOTHER dog out of Soft Suede (using the thinlit of course!) and popped up the Vellum, putting the mini dimensionals (YUM!) under the pom pom balls on his feet and front!! ¬†You can’t see them, can you!? ¬†That’s because the Vellum is so white that you can place them behind and it disappears! ¬†I LOVE this technique!

Can you see the clouds in the sky?! ¬†Those are made with Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste and the masks!

The little girl AND the dog are stamped, but the fox is cut out of the Designer Series Paper!  LOVE, love, love this suite!

Here’s a close up of the puffy:

How many NEW stamp sets can I get on a card? Plus Blog Candy!

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene! ¬†Of course I had to start making my own! ¬†And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!

I wanted to use the Bike Ride, ¬†have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water! ¬†High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water! ¬†And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying! ¬†Birds!! ¬†For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD! ¬†ūüôā

I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair! ¬†That is such a fun set! ¬†Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets! ¬†They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!

Here is my card closed:

Cute, right?!!

Here is the card partially open:

There’s the chair! ¬†And now open all the way:

I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!? ¬†Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think? ¬†Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself! ¬†Do you ever do that?

The Deets:

Cardstock
Bermuda Bay: ¬†4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun! ¬†LOL ¬†For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle! ¬†Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun. ¬†Sheesh!! ¬†I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!

Now, on to my Blog Candy!!

You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page¬†and I will put your name down each and every time you comment! ¬†But be aware…..there are some that follow me that take that comment VERY seriously! ¬†I’ve had her comment on each and every post that I make and she also comments on my Facebook page, Twitter AND my Instagram! ¬†She’s one serious girl! ¬†YOU know who you are, and I appreciate you very much! ¬†ūüôā

The moral of the story is if you REALLY want to win my Blog Candy comment on everything!  I put the names into a Name Generator so I have NO say on who wins!

It’s Washi Tape!! ¬†These are from (lf – rt), Affectionately Yours and Botanical Gardens!! ¬†Yes, these can be yours! ¬†I am running this blog candy starting yesterday (since I said I would!) until July 4th! ¬†I think that is a great day to be giving something away for FREE! ¬†Celebrating our Freedom in a way!

Good Luck!

Bumpy Bike ride near the Mountains

Today the mail came and inside was my framelits for Bike Ride from Stampin’ Up! ¬†Of course I had to give it a try!

I wanted mountains in my picture so I tore some Post-It notes and stuck them to the top of my card:

I then sponged lightly Dapper Denim at the top, making the part closer to the Sticky Notes darker, and then fading the color away.

I ran the cardstock that I was using through the Big Shot with the bumpy rock thinlit under the paper, then ran it though. ¬† This gave the Cardstock the bumps! ¬†They look like rocks so I sponged over them using Soft Suede, this highlighted the rocks! ¬†I was so tickled by this! Normally you put your thinlit OVER your cardstock to cut it out, but this time I wanted the impression. ¬†Came out pretty didn’t it!?

I stamped the Bike in Fresh Fig, SU’s NEW In Color! ¬†I also stamped the basket in it! ¬†The dog’s scarf is Fresh Fig too!

Here is the card:

The thinlits I used are the bike frame, dog, basket, flowers and butterflies.  Oh! And my favorite the rocks!

The butterflies are cut out of the Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories:

I LOVE this thinlit! Just cut out the butterfly and it has the antenna, wings and ALL!  I HAD to add Dazzling Diamonds to make them look even prettier!

The Measurements are the normal card size with the Base being in Fresh Fig 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at the 5 1/2″ line to make the card.
The Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″ ¬†And scraps for all the cut outs! ¬†This was a really fun card to make!! ¬†I love how you can make so many different things ¬†be on the bike! ¬†Just change out your background and the stamp set can be for sooooo many different occasions!

I hope you enjoyed your visit today!  I have more Blog Candy to give away  on here tomorrow!!  Be sure and visit so you can be in the drawing to win!

Birthday Delivery Fox is Very Sneaky!

Today I am going to share with you a card I am making in this month’s classes! ¬†I just LOOOOOVE this new stamp set Birthday Delivery! ¬†The best part of this set is that the thinlits cut out the stamped image AND the image printed on the DSP!! (Designer Series Paper)

If you are in a hurry and don’t want to stamp and color an image (it doesn’t happen very often!) you can always just take out the DSP and cut your image out of that! ¬†Stampin’ Up! has made it so simple to do a fast and easy card!

Here is the card I am doing in June’s class:

Isn’t he cute!!?? ¬†I used the Watercolor Pencils to color him in, and the Blender Pen to smoothe it all out! ¬†This is my new favorite way to color! ¬†No more streaks! ¬†No more worrying about putting too much ink on! ¬†Those pencils makes my job in blending so much easier! You HAVE to try them out!

I used the new punch, Pretty Label to stamp the Surprise! on and it fit perfectly! ¬†I used the Brick Wall embossing folder to make the ‘house’ part of the card and I used the Hearth and Home thinlits to make the window! ¬†Using Window Sheets the same width of the ‘window’ makes this look like a real window!

This is an impressive card, but it really is so easy!  I hope you enjoyed this! Click on any product picture below and you will be taken straight to my online store!!  When you place an order with me, I will send you a handmade card AND a small gift to let you know how much I appreciate you!  Please use this Hostess code when ordering: C62FFAR3
